Chances are someone living near you is either feeling lonely or needs a helping help. Find out how you can look out for your neighbours here: OurNeighbours.org.uk


A smile and a quick ‘hello’ is all it takes to brighten someone’s day and make them feel part of a caring community, and to help spread this message we’re supporting the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership’s Looking Out for our Neighbours campaign, which aims to encourage local people to do simple things to look out for one another to help improve the wellbeing of people living in their communities.

Social isolation can increase the risk of having a stroke by a third, and older people who live alone are 50% more likely to visit A&E than those who live with others, while the number of older people who are lonely is rising quickly. If loneliness is not addressed it can seriously affect people’s health and well-being.

Changes to Products available on Prescription

After careful consultation with the Public, NHS Calderdale CCG has recommended that Practices stop routinely prescribing branded medicines and a number of lower value, self-care products, which are widely available to buy without prescription from pharmacies and supermarkets. The Practices in North Halifax are all working to stop prescribing items commonly available in supermarkets and pharmacies such as:

  • Baby Milks
  • Infant Colic products
  • Vitamin supplements
  • Emollients (moisturisers) for minor dry skin conditions
  • Cosmetic products e.g. facial hair products
  • antifungal nail paints
  • Sunscreen products

In August, 136 appointments were missed by patients.  This is the equivalent of NINE full GP clinics! Please cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend
